Very tasty and nutritious! I used 1/4 cup olive oil, and 1/4 cup applesauce. I also added 1/2 cup dark brown sugar instead of the 1/4 white sugar. I used the thicker cut oats, which just made it better I think! I also added about 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, as I always have with my other banana bread recipes. Thanks for sharing! I'll be making this one again.

This bread came out moist and dense with a nice banana flavor. Instead of vegie oil, I used 1/4 cup canola oil and 1/4 cup applesauce, otherwise followed the ingredients. I especially liked this toasted with a little smear of Smart Balance Light.

We really enjoyed this bread. I was looking for a healthier bread to go with our chicken noodle soup tonight. I did the same changes as the previous reviewer with the applesauce and whole wheat flour. The wheat flour was great, but I think I would do 1/4 c. oil and 1/4 c. applesauce next time. I love the addition of the oats. It's a bread I felt good about serving my family. Thanks for posting!
